While health officials are still learning about the spread and severity of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the virus can spread from person to person. At The Webster Apartments we want to keep the potential for spreading the COVID-19 virus to a minimum. Therefore, at this time we have implemented screening procedures for applicants and guests, both prior to and at the time of arrival. If your country of origin is on the US Center for Disease Control’s list of affected geographic areas or if you have recently travelled through one of those areas, and are presenting with symptoms, or have been exposed to anyone presenting with symptoms, your application may be denied and/or you may be denied housing at The Webster Apartments. In such event, any prepaid fees will be refunded.
